Over the last twenty years, RAN's mission to protect forests and their inhabitants has evolved into a multifaceted master plan. Ending resource extraction that evicts indigenous communities is connected to cleaning up America's addiction to oil, which is connected to climate change and more... In short, we're out to transform the global economy. And we're doing it.
Our efforts concentrate mostly on six major issues.
Forests – Earth's ancient forests are disappearing at alarming rate. Find out why and what you can do.
Climate – Is it getting hot in here or is it just me? There's still time to make the ecological U-Turn we need.
Human rights – Every dirty coal mine or oil pipeline leaves somebody to clean up the mess.
Energy – Are you ready for the Green Rush? The renewable energy revolution is going on all around us. ..

Dubbed “the most effective environmental agitators in the business” by the Wall Street Journal, and a "mosquito in the tent" by Fortune, RAN uses hard-hitting markets campaigns to align the policies of multinational corporations with widespread public support for environmental protection.
We believe that systems of oppression are all interconnected, and that environmental action is integrally connected to struggles for human rights, economic justice, racial justice, indigenous rights, and much more. We strive to ally ourselves with groups working in many different areas and movements for social justice.
Who I'd like to meet:Advocates, activists, students, teachers, organizers, Indigenous folks, environmentalists, scientists, and concerned community members, artists and celebrities. The way RAN wins campaigns against corporate Goliaths is by working together with people like you who want to protect the environment and are willing to do something about it...something effective.
